This homemade recipe is fantastic. I got the recipe off my mother in-law having tried and tested many homemade pizza’s before, this really is best I have ever tried!
Obviously once you have the base right any topping that takes your fancy can be used, I decided on this particular topping as my son loves Prawns and Tuna.
I usually make the base 30-60 minutes before I plan on cooking the the Pizza.
Ingredients for the base:
385g Plain flour
7g dried yeast
1/4 tsp baking powder
4 tablespoons Olive oil
250ml luke warm water
Mix the flour and dried yeast and baking powder together in a large bowl
Add the olive oil and water and mix using a hand held mixer, once a dough has formed knead for a couple of minutes with your hands. Then cover and set aside at room temperature for 30-60minutes.
|Flour will have risen after the 30-60m Min’s|
After allowing it to set, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius knead the dough again once or twice and roll out onto a floured surface and then move onto a baking sheet
|Roll out to about 40cm|
Here’s what I used for the topping:
2 heaped tablespoons of tomato puree
1 tablespoon of chopped tinned tomato’s
150g tinned tuna
1 red onion (thinly sliced)
250 peeled prawns
200g grated mozzarella
1 yellow bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
To top the pizza start by spreading the tomato puree and tinned tomatoes evenly onto the base using the back of a large spoon or spatula, add the remaining ingredients and top with the grated cheese.
Carefully manoeuvre the pizza along with the baking sheet onto a baking tray and place in the middle shelf of the oven and cook for about 20-25 minutes (until the cheese has melted and turned a nice golden brown in colour)
Slice & Serve 🙂
